Growing from infants to toddlers, you learned how to squat before you learned how to speak. The squat is the simplest movement to transfer from a standing to a sitting position.
The squat position is primarily a position of rest, relaxation, and waste elimination.
But the squat is more…
When under resistance, the squat is a powerful movement that can be used to lift heavy objects. And when trained properly, the squat is the greatest builder of leg muscle strength and size.
Learning and practicing the squat can help to build functional strength while boosting metabolism and building a better-looking butt.
